C/R: Agona Swedru residents hit streets again over bad roads


Residents of Agona Swedru in Ghana’s Central Region have for the second time protested against the government for not fixing their bad roads.

A similar protest was held by some other residents a few weeks ago.

Led by a youth group called The Agona Youth, the residents on Wednesday marched through the streets to drum home their demands.

The demonstrators who held placards with several inscriptions gave police officers hectic time to control traffic.

The protesters have given the government a one-month ultimatum to fix the roads.

“We want our leaders to know that we are citizens and not spectators. We pay taxes and our businesses are collapsing because of this road”, an angry protester who held a placard with inscription “Fix the road now!” told Dailymailgh.com.

Another said: “Enough is enough. We are fed up with promises from the politicians. They can’t help us”.

Chaotic scenes were recorded in the last protest as residents mounted roadblocks forcing police to arrest some of the protesters.

The suspects have since been granted bail by a court.
